Ultrasonic sensor improves maintenance practices when re-lubricating bearings
Designed for maintenance technicians, the TLGU 10 uses ultrasonic technology to improve manual re-lubrication. When connected to a grease gun, the intuitive device helps a technician to dispense the correct amount of lubricant into a bearing.
By overcoming the problems associated with over- or under-lubrication, it can help to extend bearing life. The device is recommended for a range of bearing applications including electric motors, pumps, fans, compressors and conveyors.
Re-lubrication is critical to extending the life of bearings yet is often carried out based on experience. The TLGU 10 makes re-lubrication a more practical, condition-based process, by delivering the correct amount of lubricant to a bearing at the right time. The device is simple to use, and relies on a robust, repeatable ultrasound sensor that is optimised for harsh conditions. The sensor monitors the sound of lubricant filling the bearing. Once connected to a grease gun, the TLGU 10 allows a technician to listen to this sound, via headphones. The sound changes abruptly at the point where the correct amount of lubrication has been applied. In addition, a coloured display indicates noise levels for ease of use.
The combination of sound and visual display helps technicians to re-lubricate quickly and accurately – with the right amount. Under-lubrication can cause premature bearing failure or allow contaminants into the bearing. Over-lubrication is wasteful and expensive and can cause serious complications. Both over- and under-lubrication can reduce bearing lifetime. The TLGU 10 helps technicians to deliver the optimum amount of lubricant in order to maximise bearing performance and lifetime.
